Synonyms of "Based" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Based on and Based off ?
A: I think they're pretty much the same.

"based on" is considered more 'correct' for official things, and "based off of" is seen as slightly more informal/dialect/conversational. But "based off of" has been commonly used for quite awhile. "based off of" is also a little more common in American English, and a little less common in British English.

So, if you're writing something formal/official, then used "based on". For everything else, you can use either. You will definitely hear native speakers using both in conversation and in writing. But for official documents and occasions "based on" is still far more traditionally accepted.
